You recycle, you eat organic, you turn off the water when you’re brushing your teeth – but are you eco-conscious when choosing your underwear? Celebrate Earth Day 2016 with new pairs of underwear that are both fashionable and friendly to the environment. Get outdoors and appreciate the world around you. There are several ways to do this, but to do it right you’ll need one of these Mother Nature-approved pairs.
Earth Day 2016 falls on a Friday, so take an extra long weekend and head outside for some quality time with nature. We’d recommend starting with an epic hike like our model Sergey Shitikov. He communes with nature and shows off the latest and sexiest eco-friendly underwear.
The Elite Sport Collection from Garçon Model is not only the brand’s newest collection, but also their greenest with its bamboo fabric. The great thing about using bamboo is that the plant grows very quickly, sometimes 4 feet in a single day. This means bamboo can be grown without the use of pesticides and herbicides commonly found in cotton. Bamboo also requires 1/3 of the water that cotton does, making it highly sustainable and keeping Mother Nature happy.
And to make you happy, the bamboo fabric is also naturally anti-bacterial, odor-blocking, and moisture-wicking. This means they really are perfect for that Earth Day hike or any other physical outdoor activity. You can even wear them to the gym. Either way, the Elite Sport Collection is equal parts sustainability and style. If caring for your body and the Earth are your top priorities, then this underwear should be your top pick.
Earth Day exists to help us keep the beauty and fragility of our planet in mind. Whether with a short and easy hike to the perfect picnic spot, or casually laying by a lake, getting out in nature can help you remember to make those eco-friendly decisions. If you’re a more casual kind of tree-hugger, keep it laid back with Bluebuck’s masculine style.
Bluebuck is one of the most eco-friendly underwear brands around. They only use organic cotton, grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or insecticides – this keeps their carbon footprint small. Their entire manufacturing process takes place in Europe, which means less international shipping and fewer C02 emissions. Not only that, but their factories in Austria and Portugal are powered by clean energy from the sun, wind, and water.
Another brand that’s easy on the eyes and the environment is Wood underwear. Yes, the name is meant to be a little cheeky, but there’s more to it than that: Wood underwear is actually made from wood. Their Lenzing Modal fabric is spun from beech tree cellulose, and beech tree forests are self-propagating – which is a fancy way of saying they naturally reproduce quickly. Similar to bamboo fabrics, Wood’s beech tree cellulose material also has some natural moisture-wicking properties. This means you can wear them all Earth Day long.
Wood underwear is made to look classic. Almost all of their underwear designs rock a single solid color and a simple white waistband. We recommend them if your Earth Day plans have you out in the sun. We’re thinking of activities like gardening out in the heat, or just exploring the nearest national park.
No matter what your Earth Day plans end up being, the day is best spent wearing some eco-friendly underwear. Even if you’re at work, get through the daily grind in underwear that’s sustainably made. You wear red on Valentine’s Day. You wear green on Saint Patrick’s Day. Ease your conscious and do something good for our planet; wear something environmentally conscious on Earth Day.
